MONDAY, MAY 6, 2002

A federal judge in Washington on Friday told the Makah Nation to put a halt to pending whale hunting activities.

U.S. District Judge Franklin D. Burgess issued his temporary restraining order as part of a lawsuit filed by animal-rights activists who claim the hunt endangers gray whales. The activists want the whale hunt permanently struck, saying the tribe's treaty rights have been abrogated.

The tribe has yet to issue a whaling permit to hunting families this year.
